Again, for Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film, because he was there long before I was.
Fans will be happy for this news, young and old alike. John Williams is STAR WARS, and those themes resonate more over each year. Granted, Williams is also 81 years old, and so getting this squared away as soon as possible is to everyone’s benefit. We all want John Williams to live forever.
I also hope that Episode VII won’t be so shrouded in secrecy like Abrams’ other work. I don’t want to know intricate plot details, but I would like to see behind-the-scenes footage and casting, and basic plot details. That’s just me, though. I devour all things STAR WARS, and hopefully Williams will be healthy enough to see it through.
